Phenomena and Question: Minding Your Ps and Qs with the Three Dimensions

Friday, November 11
9:30 AM – 10:30 AM CT

Location: Grand Ballroom D

Hosted by: Ted Willard

One of the best ways to engage students in meaningful scientific investigations is through the use of real-world phenomena that can stimulate them to develop their own questions about the world. In this session, we will focus on what it really means for students to be proficient in the science and engineering practice of asking questions and what types of phenomena are most effective and efficient in supporting students in asking scientific questions.
